  • 2017 Region I Conference Wraps Up

    The 2017 Annual Region I Conference wrapped up last week in Portland, Maine. All 321 attendees had several days of great networking opportunities and informative sessions.  The "Put a Lid on Cancer" charity event raised money for the Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute (MMCCI), Maine's leading provider of oncology services for adults and children. Before we add the fundraising event to our Region I history books, we have one last request of attendees. For those that donated and gave so generously online, we do not have our own record of your contribution. If you are comfortable doing so, and have not already done so, please forward a copy of your receipt to Leslie Soares. We look forward to reporting the charity event totals to you! You can download presentations from the conference at the 2017 Region I Conference Downloads Center. Photos from the conference are available on AAMVA's Flickr Page.
